    I personally keep a Blackhawk! Hawkhook in my car just in case. I also always carry a glass breaker with me, which is either on my pen or knife.

    Do you carry a rescue knife or tool? And what is it?

    I keep a RMJ S13 on my bunker gear. And keep a spring glass breaker that looks like a pen in my Fatboy. Both are in my truck with me at all times.

    I was also looking into getting a Benchmade Triage, that or a Spyderco Assist.

    I have a benchmade 7hook on my bag and a glass breaker in my
    Center console. The 7 has never cut anything, but it's cool.

    That is a good idea. I should keep a hook in the visor instead of the center console. Easier access.

    My wife and I both keep a rescue hammer in our cars. They have two glass breakers and a seat belt cutter. My wife surprised me with them. Gotta love when the wife thinks in terms of edc

    No, not yet, at least. I'll be adding a Spyderco Assist to my collection soon, though. I plan on asking for one for my birthday next month :)

    As soon as I get one, she'll be on active duty riding along in my truck. That, and I'll probably have to buy a Rescue 79mm for backup to the Assist. God, what is wrong with me?

    My lady's parents actually gave us rescue hammers for our cars for Christmas last year. All the "kids" got them. I have been thinking about picking up a Spyderco Rescue though.

    I always keep an orange Spyderco Assist in my backpack or coat pocket (when I don't have my bag close at hand). I don't drive, but I do live in earthquake country and often ride in cars driven by crazy college students.

    I keep an old Leatherman Core multi-tool in my car. It doesn't have a glass breaker, but I figured something folded up in the tool should be able to serve that function.

    Have a ResQMe in both cars firmly anchored, out in the open, within easy reach.

    This can't be overstressed. Don't have your glassbreaker tool of choice somewhere that might be difficult to reach should accident injury render you immobilized, pinned in etc. Or in a location that could be difficult to access after an accident (backseat, rear storage area etc) or put loosely in an open console or under a seat. Wouldn't take much to send flying to inaccessible part of the vehicle during accident.

    Also, the use of any of these tools is probably intuitive to most of us. But, still had my wife go through a couple of "dry runs" with the ResQMe using a piece of plywood in-lieu-of glass to ensure she knew how the spring-loaded mechanism worked, and coached her on where to use on side-window.
